I second that. As an added benefit, you will not be locked into an environment and will get to know the smalltalk-OO model really well.
And on top of that you get nice insanity and ultra-low coding skills in the bargain!
And if that worked, don't you think it would be the default method to launch satellites and other payload into orbit instead of unreliable and expensive rockets? Guns are very well understood, and, News Flash!, do not work for this application.
Yes, and have just one shipment explode on launch and have a much larger catastrophe than Chernobyl, Windscale and Fuckupshima combined, and with immediate fine dispersal as an added bonus. Also, 1kg to orbit costs $13000 at SpaceX (and that orbit may not be high enough to cheaply get to the sun), i.e. disposal of said 70'000t would cost more than $910 Billion and would take more than 10'000 launches.
That idea is an utter failure and suddenly, nuclear power is not quite that cheap anymore...
Kind of begs the question why this crap was started without an exit-strategy...
Sorry, but you do not understand European law at all. What you say is plain wrong.
Well, the hidden effective data retention done by the NSA is not in any way better...
Since I am based in Europe, I do observe these tendencies with some level fascination. It is just as if the US envies Europe the dark ages of non-enlightenment and wants to go into something similar to compensate.
Science can often mean to prove things that seem relatively obvious. In not so few cases, they then turn out to be wrong, and in the other cases they turn from speculation to fact.
Without science, we would still believe the earth was flat, and that bloodletting was a good medical procedure to cure everything. After all, these things were obvious back then.
Indeed. And one of these days, they will crack it. It is not far out of reach. It just needs some engineering optimizations. And once the saltwater problem is solved, the solution will benefit other things working in saltwater as well.
Feel free to use it the next time
Especially if you consider that many military vehicles do not even have lockable doors...
What is next? Shoplifters as terrorists? Or people that ride public transportation without a ticket?
Seriously, this is far beyond mere ridiculous. Possibly, this utter idiocy results from a deep desire to classify all hackers as "terrorists". After all, they can do things! That seems to scare the government badly.
